I'd bet there are a lot more coach's like this one out there. Peoples lives change and they hold on to things like Birds, with the thought of one day I'll get gone and have fun. Don't wait, life is short. Tomorrow is promised to no one!

Nothing a nice modern engine swap couldn't take care of
It's a nice coach though, looks to be in good shape too....

I've come back to look at this Bird a few times since woody posted the link......... thinking it would make such a great project for someone if it stayed near it's starting price.

I would update the interior a bit, get rid of the pink (what were they thinking?), put in some nice hardwood floors, swap out the engine & trans to a late model Cummins or CAT with at least 500HP, new michelin tires, and freshen up the paint.
You would have a very nice coach!!

I saw a left over chassis the other day, i think it might have been from the Country coach auction, with a 500HP (ISM or ISL?) cummins, mounted on a chassis, wired with everything including the exhaust system and Allison transmission that would have been a plug and play set up for someone, or a coach like this one on ebay, anyway, it went for $17,000. That was a SMOKING DEAL!! all brand new.

And do you think it has a Perkins Generator? I would think that it is a Yanmar or it might be an early build 86.

No one is bidding on this at $20K?
If I didn't already have my hands full, I would have been all over this. I cant say I would go much more, only because I know what I would want to do to it, and how much it would take...... but...

We could use a couple more builds going on.... they are fun to watch.
